Birchbox Book Club: "Better Than Before, Mastering the Habits of Our Everyday Lives"

I have something very exciting to talk about today. I was chosen to review the book selected by Birchbox called "Better Than Before, Mastering the Habits of Our Everyday Lives" by Gretchen Rubin. She is also the writer of "The Happiness Project." With titles like those, I knew this book was something I needed in my life. Seriously, who doesn't want to be happier in their everyday lives!?! And doesn't everyone have a trait they're not too proud of and would like to change? I know I do...

Now, I realize changing habits is something you really need to want to do and would take some time to put in place, but this book is a great place to start! She writes beautifully with real life examples in an easy to understand language. I also learned so much about myself and why I am the way I am by reading through the chapters of this book. It was a journey of self realization and was very enlightening to realize how I could make changes in my life to become who I wanted to be, and how to deal with my personality shortcomings.

I recommend this book to anyone who wants to change the habits in their life or just understand a little bit more about themselves. And this book makes sense. Habits do shape who we are and when you are doing something as a habit, there is little or no thought to it. So why wouldn't you want to make the qualities you strive for into habits, so you do them naturally!?! This book is a must read if these topics appeal to you!

Usually, Birchbox offers their chosen book club books as gifts with purchases, but I do not see this one available yet. Be on the lookout for it soon, if you're interested in snatching it up!

*This complimentary book was received in exchange for my honest review. As always the opinions are my own!
